If the functionality doesn't demand much, it is actually better to use less code (e.g. to improve performance). When you are creating projects for education, you are mostly not concerned about a wide variety of features anyway.

It's always a good idea to use the minimum amount of code necessary to produce the results you need.

Thank you for your response to my question.
